Three Spalding and District Snooker League titles are still up for grabs ahead of tonight’s explosive final round of 
fixtures.

Top spot has yet to be determined in Divisions Two, Three and Four after last week’s games, while a number of teams are battling for survival.

In the second tier, Boundary B moved three points clear in the race for the title after a 5-1 success at Consti F. A 25 clearance from Brian Addy helped the Deepings side on their way to a triumph.

Second-placed Services A suffered an untimely 4-2 beating against friendly foes Services C – opening the door for Consti B to pip them in the race for promotion.

They saw off Crowland D 4-2 to keep their slim hopes of the title alive.

At the foot, it looks like two from Const F, H and I will face the drop after all three club rivals were beaten.

That’s because a huge 94 break from Matt Allen guided Pyramid C to a massive 5-1 win over Holbeach C to shoot the Bourne side well clear of the drop zone.

In Division Three, it’s either leaders Bourne SC B or Whittlesey B that will land the crown – but the out of sorts Bourne side will have breathed a large sigh of relief on their week off. That’s because second-placed Whittlesey C’s 4-2 win over Holbeach B wasn’t enough to keep them in the hunt for the title and third-placed Whittlesey B were beaten 4-2 by Consti G.

Table-toppers Bourne, who have lost five on the trot are now assured of promotion and go into the final day two points clear of Whittlesey C.

Down at the bottom, Services F are relegated despite a 4-2 home success over Consti J – and one of Crowland A, Boundary C and Consti J will join them.

Crowland and Boundary did their hopes of survival the power of good with wins over Whittlesey A (4-2) and Crowland B (5-1) respectively.

Meanwhile, Consti E and Bourne SC B both clinched promotion from Division Four with 6-0 wins.

Long-term leaders Consti E remain favourites for the title after knocking off fellow club side Consti C, keeping themselves three points clear.

A 23 break from Elliot Gaunt (O7) guided Bourne to their maximum victory over Gosberton C and keeps them in the hunt for silverware.

Up in Division One, all eyes are on the relegation scrap. Pyramid A, champions in 2006, were consigned to the drop by a 5-1 loss at Donington A, despite a 24 break from Eric Wyer (07).

Long Sutton D look favourites to follow them after suffering a 5-1 home reverse against Holbeach A. Breaks of 24 from Colind Dodds (O7) and 22 from Mick Pearl (O14) helped see Holbeach home.

That leaves Sutton D five points behind Services E, who went down 4-2 against Pyramid F in the big game at the foot. Jason Green (O56) reeled off a 30 break to secure the Bourne side’s survival.

Up the table, Holbeach D are in the box seat for second after thrashing Donington C 6-0.
